Cosmos drafts in carriers to aid summer 2015 programme

Cosmos has drafted in three carriers to help operate its summer 2015 flying programme following sister carrier Monarch Airlines’ withdrawal from charter and long-haul services.

The airlines supplement the operator’s ongoing flying with Monarch.

The new carriers include Norwegian, operating Cosmos’s Gatwick to Florida programme on its Boeing 797 Dreamliners; Enter Air, which will operate certain routes from Manchester and Birmingham to Greece, and Small Planet, which will run specific routes from Gatwick to Greece.

Seats on the flights will also be available as seat-only through Avro.

Monarch Airlines has converted several historic charter routes into scheduled services as part of its transition.

Sales director at Monarch Group’s tour operating division, Gary Anslow, said: “The majority of our programme will continue to be on Monarch as there is naturally a big overlap in our respective programmes.

“However, destinations that were previously serviced by Monarch charters will now be with our new partner airlines, or on other scheduled airlines.

“Our summer programme continues to be as extensive as ever, covering all of the popular destinations in the eastern and western Mediterranean, as well as Florida and other key long-haul destinations such as Mexico and the Maldives.

“Our aim in choosing our partners has been to ensure that our customers get the excellent level of service they expect when taking a Cosmos holiday – we are very happy that this will be the case.”
